Re: Currently Reading

I didn't like the anime but I like the manga a lot better. They still stretch things out way too far but it's more entertaining even though they don't exactly do the best job with the fight scenes. In some of them it's extremely hard to tell what's going on.

Just finished:
The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Now reading:
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
The Game by Neil Strauss

Re: Currently Reading

The Naruto series has actually gotten a lot better, the manga that is. I like the direction they are taking with it, but it just looks like the neverending story right now. Too much things are popping up.

I am currently reading BLAME by Nihei Tsutomi, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers.

His creations are just fascinating to me. The guy knows how to capture the loneliness and eeriness of a post-apocalyptic world. When I read his stuff, I feel like this is what a world where devastation reigns supreme. The other thing I like about his work is the way he conveys story through pictures, without using word panels. Not too many writers can pull that off.

Re: Currently Reading

Talking about post-apocalyptic stuff I finished The Road a few weeks ago and it's cool and all... but I didn't really see the hype. I guess the problem I had was I was expecting one thing and not looking for deeper meaning, and the relationship between the father and son didn't really resonate with me because my relationship with my Dad isn't that deep. I just found myself getting annoyed with the kid and eventually hoping something really happened.

Wasn't bad or anything though.

Re: Currently Reading

Appaloosa by Robert B Parker.

Yes, it's the book the movie is based on. However, I never got to see the movie (I really wanted to) and read some really good reviews about the book and decided to pick it up. I'm near the end, and although the plot is simple, almost typical Western, Parker has a way of adding suspense and never fails to make you keep turning the page. I don't know how true to the book the movie is, but whether you have or haven't seen the movie, I'd recommend picking this book up. Even if you don't like Westerns, fans of books with a lot of action, guns, and characters with that infallible, badass persona will find a lot to like here. It doesn't offer much in originality to the Western genre, but Parker successfully takes many tried-and-true formulas pertinent to Westerns and uses them exceedingly well. The result is a Western that, while not very unique in terms of plot and structure or even character archetypes, manages to stand up there with the best of them.

Highly recommended. I plan on reading the sequel, titled "Resolution", in the near future.

I see where the McCarthy was attempt to draw out feelings from the reader but during that process he bored me. I also wasn't really feeling the stilted dialogue. Was it so rough because civilization has been down for so long?

I also didn't feel any danger after they saw the people marching on the road. It's a nice little book, but I felt it would've been more effective had it been a short story.
